On Thursday night, Indiana dropped its eighth straight game to Purdue. Archie Miller is now 0-6 against the Boilermakers. While this loss only counts as one in the record books, it casts a dark pall over Year 4 of the ever-scuffling Archie Miller era.
After the game, our crew broke it all down on The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.
On the mics: Andy, Ryan, and Coach
Among the topics discussed:
— The many reasons why another loss like this is totally unacceptable
— What Matt Painter did to expose Indiana’s recurring weaknesses
— The macro flaws in Archie’s basketball philosophy
— The few positives to be taken from Race and Armaan’s consistent fight
— Trayce got his numbers, but his defense left Indiana exposed on the perimeter
— Where does Indiana go from here?
We also point out a few meaningful moments you may have missed, go inside the numbers, and hand out our game balls. All of that, and more, on this edition of The Assembly Call.
